Every quarter (and hopefully more), we will be hosting a new community service project through the shop. Helping others is something that Bryan and I are both extremely passionate about, and want to use Blue Maple Co as a path to making more of a difference in the world around us
In November, we will be collecting books for Reading Partners, a Tulsa non-profit that fosters literacy in area elementary schools. The program embeds reading centers in the schools themselves, and recruits volunteers to spend an hour a week with a struggling reader in the Tulsa Public School system. The students are also given the opportunity to build their home libraries, with a new book to take home each week.
This is where you come in. For each new or slightly used early elementary age book brought to Blue Maple Co in November, you will receive an entry into a drawing for a $100 shop gift card, which can be used on a new piece or a redo of your existing piece. Reading Partners works with students in grades K-3, so books with 1-3 short sentences per page are perfect.
If you have any questions at all, or want to donate but can't make it to the shop, please feel free to e-mail us!
